Spotify for Artists is a way for you to take control of your artist page and see who’s listening!
If you use CD Baby to upload your music to Spotify, you get instant access to sign up for Spotify for Artists once your content is delivered. When you get access to Spotify for Artists through CD Baby, you’re automatically verified on Spotify and your profile gets a blue verification check mark. Getting verified on Spotify lets your fans know that your artist profile belongs to you. Click here to start the process.
If you are not seeing your artist show up in the drop down menu, it could be:
- Content just recently delivered to Spotify and the information has not yet processed on the Spotify side
- You did not choose Spotify as one of their DD Partners
- You have not given your final approval for digital distribution
How to file an Artist Separation
You can file a Spotify artist separation straight from your CD Baby account dashboard! Simply log into your CD Baby account and under “Manage” select the link “Spotify Artist Separations”.
You will have the option to move your album from the wrong Spotify page to the correct one (or create a new Spotify artist page if you don’t have one already). You can also request that Spotify move someone else’s release off your Spotify page. We’ll walk you through it step by step. Once the request is complete, a confirmation page will be displayed. Please make sure to submit only one request per album that needs to be moved, duplicate requests can delay your Artist Separation request or even cause it to be rejected.
How to find the Artist URL on a partner site
On Spotify, you can obtain these URLs by right-clicking the artist name, then left-clicking "Share" and then left-clicking "Copy Artist Link."
